Door to Time In Florida
Past, present and future
by William P. Ryan
History magic happens as time flows in the door of a small Florida
museum. Florida author and historian William P. Ryan offers
untold true stories in his first person style that is both
entertaining and informative. The connection is Inventor Nicholas
Tesla’s experiments in space and time of 1898. Fiction? Perhaps
not. New linked stories of Florida history flow before The Bunnell
Boy’s Club, whose aging docents discover the safety of the
world may lie in their hands. Ormond hotel keeper and 19th Century
author John Anderson, the infamous Andersonville Prison, Germany’s
Stalag Luft 17B prison, private pilots flying against U Boats, a
seaman of 1564, a Lost Colony and many others all unite to tell their
authentic, well researched stories. These surprisingly are connected
to the shelves and books in the Bunnell History Annex.
Florida Door to Time is a must read for those
interested in the Florida history..
Background: The first alternating current electric
generators built illuminated the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in
1893. They were purchased by Henry Flagler to bring modern power to
his now vanished Ormond Hotel once located near the small Florida
village of Bunnell. Tesla's secret experiments smashed the time
envelope containing "our past, the present and the future"
all together. This storm in time makes it possible for visitors from
the past to arrive and offer previously unknown stories. The members
of ‘The Bunnell Boy’s Club’ discover that ‘saving the
world’ may have a price to be paid. The museum’s careful folders
and collections could be a dangerous door into the present, one that
might even affect your life today.
Researched fact and fiction are here
interlinked in this entertaining book.
